Then Wear the Gold Hat, if it Will Move Her

"Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter- tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms father..."

Welcome to Dream American, a fanlisting for Fitzgerald's masterpiece, The Great Gatsby. One of the greatest American novels of the twentieth century, Gatsby has a pretty good claim on the much-coveted title, "The Great American Novel". But, more than that, it's one of my favorite books, and I really want to share a part of that luxurious magic with the world. It's listed under the Books category of TFL, in the Fitzgerald, F. Scott subcategory.

The novel tells the sordid tale of a man who loves a woman and a woman who loves his money. Its backdrop is the glittering excesses of the Jazz Age- its hero is a bootlegger and its heroine is less than such. But the story reaches places in the soul of a dream that few writers dare venture. And, man, can that young fellow write.
